I'm a math and computing student and have to build a small Java compiler (Java -> ByteCode) with flex and bison. Since both flex and bison compile and run very differently on different machines, I need to send my project on some linux (in form of VirutalBox file).
Can someone tell me which linux to choose. This is what I need:
- linux system under 70Mb installed on hard disk
- small and compact graphical environment (Xfce or similar)
70Mb should be with installed graphics and with installed gcc.
Bison and Flex are optional (i can install that later with no problem).
System itself should be with kernel and gcc not older than a year (I don't have time to mess with installing all day).
I'm using a Linux for a few years so I don't need somet easy-to-use linux.
Just as I was afraid of ..
I tried Damn Small Linux, but there are some driver issues on my laptop ... fixing them would need more time than to build my own distro ...
I'll have a look at some more of those distros.
